It is a sad day for Irish journalism when the metro publishes one of my letters but when someone last thursday made a crack along the lines of "Isn't it odd that we have an overweight minister for health" I did feel compelled to write:
"In response to Paul's comment in thursday's issue I'd like to say that it is a cheap shot to have a go at Mary Harney on the basis of her weight - something that does not in the slightest affect her ability to alienate and annoy nurses, make an increasing shambles of the health system or waste millions of euro on poorly thought out schemes. No, that has a lot more to do with being a dangerously incompetent buffoon with the interpersonal skills of a rattlesnake."

So if you were reading the metro and you were aroused by the practically swiftian level of wit on the right hand side of the letters page, you're welcome.
